I needed to build a chicken coop for my chicken, so I went to the mill & p/u some ruff cut cedar ($24.00) & some scrap material around the shop & a chicken coop was born LOL.
Total cost $50.00 The coop it’s self is 4’ X 4’ X 3 1/2’ tall sitting on a platform 1’ high.

Everytime I log in Todd, I sit and wonder what you will build out of cedar this week bud…. never, ever would I have guessed this one. That will be the best smelling chicken in three states lol. Was kinda disappointed you didnt put a horseshoe perch in there somewhere though…lol Another great build sir. You may be the most creative material user I know. Stay safe bud

Excellent build, Todd. Going to make those chickens very happy to call it home. So where did you put the hottub for them?

Functional art, I like the re-purpose of the drawers.

That is wild !! LOL…i agree of the best smelling chickens. The cedar is a great wood to use, and smell. That is a really cool design.
